Child Sexual Abuse - Raising Awareness and Understanding
Fri 24 March 2017, 10:00 – 16:00 GMT
A one day workshop suitable for a wide range of professionals and volunteers.
Developed with expertise gained over more than 30 years' of working directly with survivors of CSA and rape, the workshop offers participants valuable insights into abuse, how it occurs, and who the abusers are. It will help participants know where to begin when supporting people suffering from the impact of CSA and sexual violence.
This training provides an overview of CSA and sexual violence, and evidences the long-term impact these traumatic events have on survivors. It will help participants understand the barriers that exist to disclosure and how they can support and manage this sensitively in their professional or voluntary roles.
The workshop will provide a safe space to discuss and explore reactions to, and fears about, a very challenging subject, and to dispel some of the myths that surround it. By the end of the workshop participants will feel better equipped to support survivors in their work, help signpost them to support agencies, and manage their own self-care.
Coffee and tea are included. Lunch is not provided, but a 1 hour break is scheduled for participants. Kitchen facilities available and there are shops and cafés nearby.
CPD certificates will be provided to all participants.
